A Full Life
|did you say "walk"|
We had a bit of stress this week in the house....there was a large fly inside the house and well my brave schnauzer is afraid of flies inside the house. Poor poor Frodo, he hid upstairs in his cage for forty eight hours. If he was outside, he was hiding under a bush refusing to come inside the house.
|awesome big salad with a puzzle!|
Yesterday my main goal was to kill the fly. Oh the things we do for our children and pets. I remember when my daughter would scream if she spotted a spider. The whole family was involved in finding and killing a wee little arachnid. Why was it that the spider loved to appear at bedtime?
I digress....so yesterday I stood in the kitchen listening and waiting for that huge fly. Don't fear, I did get him within 15 minutes (I'm a ninja!). My challenge was to convey to Frodo that the fly was gone. As you can imagine we have a language barrier. So he hid, I bribed with treats and promises of walks to get him to come downstairs.
Last night he joined us (finally) but he was on alert hearing phantom buzzing and primed to bolt off the couch. This morning (last photo) he is happily back in his sofa nook sleeping soundly and looking a little more relaxed. Except when I placed my knitting in the photo. That's him ignoring me.
|my daily walk|
I've been eating salads and walking daily. Trying to be healthy. I've been having more mouth sores from my previous medicine increases (side effect) so now I'm drizzling a bit of olive oil on my salad instead of tangy salad dressing. Just changing that has helped immensely!
Do any of you have some non-dairy salad dressing recipes that are low in acid ? If so please share them with me!
So yeah, I have a clean and tidy house, it is fly free for the moment and I'm focusing on healthy living. I am living a full life.
